    Suprises Stores on Ebay UK

    Hi all.

    I came across Surprises Stores on Ebay. It says they're based in the UK but their prices seem too good to be true. I asked if they have a quicker delivery than 2nd class and they said no. They replied at 3am this morning which makes me a little suspicious.

    They have to have a great selection of G Shocks.

    Has anyone here from UK used them?

    Thanks

    2 years & 364 + feedbacks 100% seems fine

    Prices? not good at all IMHO

    I think you will easily find better prices especially on some models.

    My guess would be a Chinese store with a warehouse in the UK. Perhaps they are profiting from the strong GBP, as importing goods into the UK is now very cheap.

    The writing style of the "About us" page seems very Chinese.

    There's the odd price that's not bad.

    Don't let your 'lust' for a particular watch blind you though. Do the full tour of comparison shopping on all the sites.

    Obviously you have to take into account shipping costs & potential for duties/taxes.

    Find the deal that's best for you & go!

    You're up at 3 a.m. too. He's up shopping for inventory in Japan where it's ? whatever time ... & he's a one-man operation probably

    operating from home.

    I was particularly looking at the all black Gulfmaster that they have on for £260. That's £100 cheaper than any other UK store that I can see

    I'd hope that if his eBay says he in the UK then all I'd pay is what's listed. There's no mention of tax or import charges

    His price on the watch is 'rich' but, as flying said ... it depends on the overall tax situation.

    Re: Suprises Stores on Ebay UK

    I know but it's a good price compared to other stores in the UK. I don't mind if it's not as cheap as ordering from Japan directly as I don't want to get hit with import charges etc.

    I'll report back if I decide to purchase.

    Thanks for the advice guys.
